The one I know at Port Solent is a early-mid 80's red one in poor condition with trs drives and a wooden swim platform - bit bigger than mine. Been there for years, just moves around the from one end of the yard to the other between seasons.

Love the hull shape of it, the extra bit of size makes a huge difference. Doubt it's worth anything much though, TRS drives are obsolete, and I was told at least 1 of the engines is shot, if it's been sitting up for a long time you'd have to assume both need replacing, plus the early 80's interiors look really really dated now, though perhaps might appeal to John jfk as there's probably some sheepskin somewhere in there. Be interested if someone decides to make a go of it though.

Yeh. Unless someone falls in love with it, which I guess is possible, I can't see it being worth the work though. It's actually the first formula I ever saw, maybe 7 or so years ago, in the same state then as now more or less, but I loved the shape and only realised what it was when I saw it again when I bought DR.

thers a notice on the side of the boat,but yes as i read it the highest price takes it,and i would think it would be in the hundreds and not the thousands,because of a full gut out and re-power

Agreed, not worth much. Ya could get lucky thought and it isn't so bad.
I think it's something like a 1983 302LS - see page 11 <a href='http://www.formulaboats.com/documents/brochures/1983%20Formula%20Brochure.pdf'>here</a>
or maybe a 302 sr1 - see page 11 <a href='http://www.formulaboats.com/documents/brochures/1984%20Formula%20Performance%20Brochure.pdf'>here</a>

Obviously it's a least a year since I last saw it and the brain cells fade a bit, so I could be wide of the mark, could be even older.

i was at port solent yesterday and formulator is still there and you have untill the 1st of march to get your bids in. they were taking bids for it last summer,so i guess thet didnt get any thats why its still there. the notice on the boat says there is an outstanding bill of nearly £400 . so it could very cheap for someone ,but a shit load of work
